Forum: etree Subject: Re: FLAC Version Compatibility

I had to go back to an older version of FLAC, was having the same problems when I built up a new audio work station and downloaded the latest version.

Just want to correct this misinformation to avoid confusion:

The version of FLAC you use has nothing to do with problems with your upload (unless you are using a *very* old copy of FLAC). The version we use on our deriver machines (1.1.2) is 100% forward compatible with the current version (1.1.4) and I confirmed this on the FLAC mailing list.

There was an error that came up when I ran the derivatives that even mentioned that the error was likely related to the use of the more recent releases of FLAC.

This information is incorrect as well. Again, the version we use is 100% compatible with the newest version of FLAC. Files encoded with 1.1.4 will upload, verify and decode without any issues. I have been using 1.1.4 with no issues and recently uploaded a recording that worked fine.

I still would like to take a master .wav file and create one flac using the newest version and another flac using an older version. This is the message I picked off one of the shows that I uploaded that contained an error. This same show was bit torrented from the same file set as the upload with no errors. http://bt.etree.org/details.php?id=505579

I'm human and could be making a mistake uploading but I haven't been able to find any errors in my ftp config or errors with other uploads. This Franti show http://www.archive.org/details/mfs2007-05-26 was transferred and uploaded using the same methods except for the use of the older version of FLAC

Thanks for everything you guys do!

Here is the copy and pasted message I got when I derived the files in question.

The FLAC stream may have been created by a more advanced encoder. Try metaflac --show-vendor-tag nrps2006-12-08d2t06.flac If the version number is greater than 1.1.2, this decoder is probably not able to decode the file. If the version number is not, the file may be corrupted, or you may have found a bug. In this case please submit a bug report to http://sourceforge.net/bugs/?func=addbug&group_id=13478 Make sure to include an email contact in the comment and/or use the "Monitor" feature to monitor the bug status.

It went too long without being fixed so it was "made dark" after looking for it in my contribution center links.
Thanks for maintaining this beast!
